Adamek-McBride Changed From April 23 To April 9

Tomasz Adamek vs. Kevin McBride, originally scheduled for late April at Newark's Prudential Center has been moved to Saturday, April 9th, it was announced today by promoters Kathy Duva of Main Events and Ziggy Rozalski of Ziggy Promotions.

The cancellation of the planned April 9th PPV bout between Juan Manuel Marquez and Eric Morales, coupled with the proximity of April 23rd to Easter Sunday caused the change.

"Like Tomasz Adamek, many of the Polish fans are deeply religious and the fact that the bout was scheduled for Easter Saturday was troubling to them," Duva explained.   "We heard the fans loud and clear and, when the opportunity to move to April 9th presented itself, we decided to move to a date that is more acceptable to our fans."

"We expect that the PPV audiences for the Adamek fight and the Eric Morales fight, which is now scheduled to appear on April 9th, will consist of entirely different people," she continued.  The beauty of PPV is that everyone can choose to watch whatever event they prefer.  There are so many interesting fights scheduled on this spring that it is very hard to match an optimum PPV date with a date that also works in a big, busy arena like Prudential Center."
